A tasty time: Veggie Fest comes to Lisle-Naperville area
By SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA
Community members gathered last weekend to celebrate healthy eating at the ninth annual Veggie Fest.
Held at the Science of Spirituality Meditation Center on the border of Lisle and Naperville, Lisle Mayor Joe Broda cut the ribbon Saturday to kick off one of the largest vegetarian festivals in North America.
The event included an international food court, health speakers, food demos, a children's tent, live music and more than 100 vendor booths.
The festival also provided an opportunity for attendees to give back to the community by donating blood or bringing nonperishable vegetarian items to a food drive benefiting People's Resource Center.
